On my screen that looks like ivory/cream. :) I think it works in part because the grey of the jacket is light enough to minimize the starkness that usually results from a white square. Plus the scarf helps casualize. I think a Drake's wool/silk motif square in purple or blue would work too. Great combo.

Colors on the pic must be off...it's definitely a white square, and the jacket is light blue, not light gray. It's 36676:

And yes, I didn't mean to say that white linen is the only acceptable choice, could have worn plenty of other things too.

Man, my screen is messed up. I figured it was Moonbeam, but a different one. :embar:

I don't think it's your screen. The colours in that pic are markedly less blue than in the sample swatch on the Harrison's website.

Last night I wore purple velvet jacket, white linen PS, white shirt, jeans and black double monk Lobbs from 2003. Women wanted to touch me. I'll be wearing the same thing again this week.

Maybe they thought you were a P.I.M.P?

Velvet is definitely an evening fabric. In sunlight, not so much.

I think it works for any festive occassion, party, etc., day or night.

About 10 years ago I used to run into a chap around midtown in NYC who wore his brown peak lapel velvet jacket in the downtown area during the day and evening. During the day with jeans and the evening with flannels and a tie. His name is Alan Flusser.

Ah yes, Alan Flusser. That paragon of style and good taste.... ;)

Flusser passed no fucks given miles and miles and miles ago. And looks worse for it

Pretty strong Beetle Juice vibe in that last pic

Flusser is a prime candidate for "Do as I say, not as I do."

Hey crew. What's all the Flusser bout?

post #2820 of 3314
Agreed that the public Flusser, post 2007, hasn't been an example of classic menswear style. The outfits, posted above, certainly make him an easy target for negative comments from people with expectations that he should dress like a page out of "Clothes and the Man".

In the 80's, 90's and early 2000's he was one of the finest resources for classic menswear and style. Not quite sure what triggered his style change for sure but I had heard that in the mid 2000's there were numerous changes to his business, with partners/investors coming and going and the closing and then relocation of his formerly very stylish and cool Custom Shop. His former location, around the corner from Saks Fifth Ave was elegantly decorated and loaded with Edward Green shoes made to his specs, custom belts and neckwear, sportswear and accessories and of course everything for ordering custom suits. It was quite the place to visit in it's heyday.

To me, if Alan Flusser wants to dress in his own eccentric style, then good for him. It isn't as if he is saying to anyone, "dress like me".
